Izakaya Ren

An izakaya is a specific type of Japanese restaurant that serves, for lack of a better term, bar snacks. (A tapas bar is a common comparison.) Izakaya Ren splits the difference between izakaya cuisine and the American concept of a sushi bar. You can order nigiri sushi, sashimi and maki as well as tempura and other familiar dishes, but branch out with the selection of skewered meats and fare like tako wasabi (cold, spiced octopus) or fried mackerel with a sake-based dipping sauce.
